Ben Hyman is quoted as saying, “You’d be surprised. There are some pretty active Jews in Pigtown” (“The Fight for Pigtown,” March 28). Two of them are my friends, Bill Marker and his wife, Nan Tuckett.
They have been active in their community and in Jewish congregational life for many years. Bill has served as president of Citizens of Pigtown and as a board member of the Washington Village/Pigtown Neighborhood. Bill and Nan have each even donned the Pigtown Pig costume for community events.
Both love their historic and growing neighborhood. Nan is proud to be “the vegan Jew of Pigtown,” which sounds like an oxymoron but is true nonetheless.
